A. B. Meyer, 1874,
Until recently considered conspecific with P. poliocephalus (and P. misoriensis), but assembled evidence of differentiation includes entirely olive-grey crown and face, no crownstripe, grey head sides with indistinct supercilium, greyish-olive mantle, obscure yellowish wingbar, bright yellow-green edges of remiges, dirty white throat and belly, grey-smudged breast, olive flanks, dark brown uppertail, dull plain overall plumage, horn lower mandible#R; relevant material not seen in this review and use of scoring system herein adopted therefore unfeasible, but cumulative weight of characters persuasive. In past, when regulalry lumped, the expanded species was erroneously listed in HBW and elsewhere#R as P. poliocephalus, but name maforensis has priority. Monotypic.
Numfor I, in Geelvink Bay (NW New Guinea).
